Royston Chatsworth is commissioned to film a sanitized documentary contrasting old-style mental health care with the improvement 1990s care-in-the-community has brought

Showing him around the derelict ward of a former mental hospital is nurse-turned-caretaker, Janet

Determined to show the reality of care-in-the-community, Janet introduces Milly, an old baglady and former inmate who returns to the empty hospital as it's the only shelter she has

But as Royston experiences a flashback into his own life, he makes a life-changing decision

This dynamic one-act drama for a mixed cast makes an ideal festival choice


Janet Crawford: kindly, spirited; 50s

Rachel Walters: civil servant, spiteful, uncaring; 30s

Royston Chatsworth: late 40s
